ISO 9001
What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 sets out the requirements of a complete Quality Management System (QMS) that can be adapted to suit your organisation. By scrutinising and streamlining your processes against the QMS, your organisation will be far more able to meet your ambitions for sustainability and growth.

Often a requirement for tender applications and with a strong 30-year history, ISO 9001 is widely seen as the most credible, robust and effective business improvement tool on the market.

ISO certification is based on a three-year audit cycle. Your initial audit will take place in two stages. Stage One is a review of your documented Quality Management System. Stage Two looks at the effectiveness of your QMS and leads to certification from us. Centre for Assessment is then required to complete annual review visits over the following two years. We will work with your timeframes for your ISO 9001 audits and assist you if you are unsure about any aspect of the certification process.

Is ISO 9001 right for you?

If you want to evaluate and improve the way you do business, ISO 9001 certification is the answer.

The Standard has always been popular with large organisations but the latest version (published in 2015) makes ISO 9001 certification an equally good option for businesses of any size and in any sector. ISO 9001 is often a requirement of supplier contracts and can certainly give you an advantage in tender applications.
